    Does anyone use REVIVE?

    If so what are what are your comments and feedback about this product?

    It is a liquid fertilizer spray for neutrilizing salt and dog urine.
    Ratio is 32ozs per 2500sf.
     
  2. Here is a link to our extension office article on dog spots. After trying many things over the years, I agree with them.

    About Revive
    If you are talking about the same Revive made in Denver, it is available in liquid or granular. It is sold as an organic soil builder with an added wetting agent.
    I haven't seen any claims in their advertising that it works for dog spots so we may be talking about different products.

    Revive is used by True Green here, I looked at the product and decided to go with a different wetting agent.

    What about using Gypsum on dog spots?
    Would that help leach the salt through quicker?
    I've heard of people using Gypsum along walkways and roads to reduce damage from winter salting.
     
  4. I've tried it and didn't see that it really worked. I believe water would give best results.
    Best bet is to train the dog to use one area only.

    Revive works great when having to deal with drought conditions and water restrictions, it is an organic soil treatment that loosens the soil and allows for better water penetration. Be careful when using the granular product though, because it does have some iron in it.
